The Day I Turned Blue
The day I turned blue
Was a day I'll never forget
Everybody staring at you
And calling you a reject
Eyes blazed, heads turned
Tongues wagged, words exchanged
Friends lost and friends spurned
No one wanted to be with the deranged
Shops signs suddenly went to ‘Closed'
And angry yobs gathered
Never had I felt so exposed
My soul was really haggard
As the day wore on and night came
The clouds got darker and my blue face hidden
I soon released we are not the same
And that some people are forbidden
That night in bed all I did was cry
In the morning I awoke, my stomach in knots
If I was blue today I'd die
The hatred never stops
In the bathroom I looked in the mirror
The blue rash had gone
Was now a human again or something similar?
Or someone classed as wrong?
So outside I went, a smile upon my face
But blue faces stared at me
As though I was a disgrace
There seems no answers in humanity
I saw on the news and on the paper
‘Blue rash spreads worldwide'
But yet I was still an outsider
The Jekyll within the Hyde.
